The Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS), Enugu State Command, says it has beefed up security in its Enugu, Nsukka and Oji-River custodial centres in the state.

The Controller of Corrections in Enugu State, Mr Nicholas Obiako told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Monday that the measure was taken with the collaboration partnership with sister security formations in the state.

 

Obiako said that the 82 Division Garrison of the Nigerian Army, Nigeria Police and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corp (NSCDC) had greatly contributed to the recent security beef up.

“We have also received more armed officers from the NCoS armed squad from our headquarters in Abuja.

 

“On the need for strengthening security; I have gone out and extended the NCoS partnership to the Nigerian Army, Police and NSCDC.

“They all obliged us with more armed men to beef up security in our Enugu, Nsukka and Oji-River Custodial Centres,’’the controller said.

NAN reports that the recent security beef up was as a result of the jail break in Kuje Custodial Centre in Abuja earlier in July. (NAN)
